3:00am
going without your gadgets. chris says stress? a day without my smart phone is more like a vacation. billy says i'm stress free. i think it's a generation thing. teens can't remember what it was like without them because they always had them. that's the anxiety. thank you so much for joining us. "fox & friends" starts right now. good morning. it's thursday, december 5. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. new details this morning. president obama watched his signature health care plan sink from the sidelines holding only one private meeting with kathleen sebelius in three and a half years. should he have been more involved? we report, you decide. >> it wasn't even private at that. the president pitching obamacare to the young people. >> if you're a bartender, have a happy hour. and also probably get health insurance as a lot of bartenders don't have it. >> that's right, get them tanked up.
3:01am
why the young people in this country, the ones who voted for that man you saw a moment ago, losing faith in the commander in chief. >> if you clean offices, put sticky pads on people's desks, buy health insurance so they have something to look at. it is a christmas classic played out under ground. >> stick your tongue on that pole. >> are you kidding? stick my tongue on that stupid pole? gee! >> a christmas story on a new york city subway station. did you ever lick a pole? "fox & friends" starts right now. ♪ ♪ >> the thing about that pole in the subway, i don't even like to touch it with my hands. everybody who's got the flu -- >> you're not a theater guy. elisabeth grew up in the
3:02am
theater on the stage. she understands the reason for the craft is you have to be willing to do stuff like that. >> exactly not. i grew up on the bench arcs bench warmer. >> i'm with you. >> what a great idea that is; right? >> stay tuned for that. in the meantime let's talk a little bit about obamacare. remember when the website was launched and it stunk up the place -- >> no one was paying attention because we were in a lockdown shutdown with the government. >> there was a lot of that going on. the president, the heat was on the frying pan, and he said you know what? i was not directly informed that there was a problem with it. now we know there was a reason that he was not directly informed. because from the day that he signed the obamacare affordable care act right up through november 30 of this year, he had one meeting with kathleen sebelius, and tim geithner wasn't there.
3:03am
it wasn't even a face-to-face, a one on one, i should say. >> the government accountability institute is the study behind this. they looked at obama's white house calendar. they took a look at all the dates and where he was, who he met with, as steve just said there was no one on one meeting. a representative from the accountability office had this to say on hannity. >> you can look at any president -- george w. bush, richard nixon, ronald reagan, bill clinton -- you look at their calendar and you can see what's important to them. even if you don't know anything about what was going on at that time, look at that calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> they say that -- they went on to say they have a list of all their meetings. 277 private meetings with 16 other cabinet members. 277 with 16 other cabinetmakers --
3:04am
cabinetmakers, they pretty much make their own cabinets in the white house. so that just shows a lack of focus, a lack of interest. it remind me of the fact that i remember when james woolsey was the director of the c.i.a. with bill clinton. he didn't have much interest in surveillance, intelligence and international affairs when he got started. it all changes and people used to say james woolsey never gets to see the president. it does play into a narrative we're beginning to see. it's beginning to show the president, even though "the new york times" points out there is dysfunction there and obviously you feel the same way, it shows to say i think there is someone going on here, removing the president from the blame. pulling him back and saying blame these people for not executing for him which would partly explain why robert gibbs on another channel, who was a former press secretary and good friend, is blasting to everybody around the president saying someone's
3:05am
got to be fired which plays into his former deputy bill burton coming on megyn kelly last night and saying something similar. listen. >> as a loyalist to the president, as somebody who is behind this law and worked hard with the team to get it passed, do you want to see somebody held accountable for this disastrous rollout? >> my view is that i can't make the decision whether or not it's best to fire somebody because ultimately this lies on the president's shoulders. we can't fire the president. >> you're saying if anybody should be held accountable, it should be barack obama? >> absolutely. >> the buck stops there. and we hrerd when he was running for president -- and we heard when he was running for president, beware, this is somebody who never had any executive experience. he's never run anything. now here we have rolled this out and it has been terrible. and he only met kathleen sebelius, it wasn't even one on one but face-to-face one time. this was his signature achievement. i think next time, a word
3:06am
to kathleen sebelius -- i know you're watching -- if you want to see the president more often, learn how to golf. at the same time i think he golfed 100 times. >> but is that okay with you? this is the signature plan of our president. maybe they chose to shelter him or do you think maybe he was not interested. this is someone who affects everyone. we know people that are dropped, adding to that their kids, their dependents. this is a situation going into people's homes. let us know what you think about that. >> we had more meetings about replacing the curvy couch -- seriously -- than he had one on one with kathleen sebelius. it's priorities. the couch is important to the show. how important was the affordable care act to the president to meet with the woman in charge of implementing it? doesn't look very. >> not sitting well with parents and not sitting well with their kid.
3:07am
>> yesterday there was a mini youth summit at the white house. the white house youth summit on the affordable care act. they were able to put two things together. the president knows no matter how he got here, he cannot be successful from here if he cannot get young people excited about signing up for health care and feeling responsible to do so, especially those who supported him for so many years. did i say supported him for so many years? we're going to look at a study that says many are not now but the president is trying to get into your life and trying to understand what young people do and that is oftentimes socialize. they also go to a lot of bars in certain places. if you want to get young people to do something, maybe you should talk to them about, talk to their bartender about talk to their constituents. listen. >> if you're a student body president, set up a conference on campus. if you work at a nonprofit, open your doors and use your e-mail list to help people learn the facts. if you've got a radio show, spread the word on air.
3:08am
if you're a bartender, have a happy hour and also probably get health insurance because a lot of bartenders don't have it. >> last week telling moms, okay moms, over thanksgiving, sit down with your kids and talk about why they should sign up for obamacare. now it's the bartenders. now it's bartenders. the young people in this nation, they're smart and they have great -- they do have great jobs. they're out there working their tails off and they are smart with their money. and this is why they're getting hip to the fact right now that this isn't going to work for them. according to the recent poll, harvard university's institute of politics put out a poll asking them do you approve or disapprove of obamacare? look at the results. only 38% approve in that age bracket. and that age bracket is 18 to 29-year olds. these are the people that the kpwoepl -- that the obama campaign went after. >> look at the next one. this is spectacular and this is terrible news for the white house.
3:09am
these are millenials, people between 18 and 24. these are the people who can still be on their parents' health insurance, and yet 52%, a majority of them, millenials who took part in the study, would recall the president of the united states. they're worried about their future. they're worried about the political system. they're worried about the n.s.a. they're drifting away from traditional politics. they don't like the way things are going and if they had the chance, they would recall the president of the united states. >> and they also would probably around the same numbers recall everybody in congress, very disappointed. >> yeah but he's the leader. >> harvard's analysis of the poll said, quote, millenials are losing touch with the government and its programs because they believe the government is losing touch with them. >> wake up washington. >> let's say we wanted to get in touch with other news, who would you reach out and touch? >> neil cavuto. >> what about somebody in the building?
3:10am
it sounds like ainsley, rhymes with earhart. >> it is ainsley earhardt. >> you get an a for trying. >> good morning, ainsley. >> good morning. let me tell you what's happening in the news. a stolen truck carrying extremely dangerous materials just found and at least some of that material was recovered. the truck was headed to a storage facility near mexico city when two armed gunmen confronted the driver and took off. the truck was carrying a medical device used in the treatment of cancer patients. inside it cobalt 60, highly radioactive. authorities long worried these materials could be used to make a dirty bomb. the thieves are still on the run. >> the spurs and minnesota timber wolves were about to play a game in mexico city but smoke filled the arena causing the game to be called off. a generator malfunctioned. the matchup will be made up in minnesota at a later
3:11am
date. that was brian's story. sorry. this is a serious story. i hate to report this but we need to. autopsy results revealing that paul walker initially survived that horrific impact of the car crash but died seconds later when the car burst into flames. investigators are still trying to determine exactly what caused his friend to careen out of trouble. >> cary russell was sleeping alone in her brooklyn home when she was startled, when she was awokened by sounds at 3:00 a.m. by two burglars upstairs. she got up to investigate and found her living room window and front door were wide open. hours later cops arrested the men who took her laptop, expensive handbag and jewelry. and those are your headlines. apparently two guys were in her house. they did recover all the stuff and one of the guys has just been released from jail recently. >> career criminal.
3:12am
all right, ainsley. thank you very much. >> coming up, dozens of whales stranded in shallow water. now what? the desperate rescue operation happening right now. >> and healthcare.gov might be working better than it was in the beginning, but is it safe? stuart varney went head to head with one of the architects of obamacare and see what happened as he rolls on live to the curvy couch. ♪ ♪ ♪ what does that first spoonful taste like? ok. honey bunches of oats. ching! mmmm! mmmm! mmmm! wow! it's the oats. honey. yeah. honey bunches of oats. this is a great cereal.

3:16am
>> yes. >> you want them to put your personal information out so i give you another chance. that is your camera. look into it and say right there. say you put your personal information -- you're an architect of this. you put your personal information in this and it is secure. tell them. >> i put my personal information on the website when i was trying to look for information -- >> is it secure? >> i don't run it today. >> wow. so did emanuel ever answer the question? let's ask stuart varney. you asked him the question. all he had to do was say yes. >> i asked him three times. three times i said will you tell our viewers that if they sign up for obamacare, put their personal information into that computer, their identity into that computer, is it secure? will you say it is secure? he would not. three times i asked him. he would not. i think that's irresponsible. you should not be going around the country saying sign up. come on in. we want you to sign up. if you cannot guarantee the
3:17am
security of the highly personal information which you're putting into that computer. >> here's the thing. you heard chairman rogers say that is a political. he's a former f.b.i. guy. you had the guy mackafee who said the only way to put security in there is to take it down and do it the next time. at the very least can we shop and then put our personal information once i settle on united? >> precisely. when you go on amazon to shop, get on the site and you shop. with you get on the site, you give them your personal information, you open an account, and then you can shop. it's the wrong way around. maybe it's deliberate. i don't know. but you should not be that way around. and they should not be going around the country saying sign up if you cannot guarantee my security. now, for example, let's suppose that somebody steals someone's
3:18am
identity -- and this almost inevitably will happen -- who do they sue? do they sue the government? do they sue obamacare? do they sue ezekiel emanuel? i don't know but somebody is going to get sued. >> 29,000 people signed up over the last few days which shows they're getting the website going but no one is confident about the back end, the execution of the plan. >> right. it's the flow of information along with the privacy of that information that is a huge problem. how do you get that information from your account to the insurer? that's where so many errors are occurring. you're right, your information has been diverted to who knows where. this is not right. >> the other feedback we're getting from the insurance experts and insurance companies is a lot of stuff is coming to them inaccurately and the word is this. jumbled. like the words bugged and glitched. jumbled. thanks for dumbing it down. >> there is no ideology here. if you want security of the website, you're not being
3:19am
ideological. you're not saying obama is right or the republicans are right. you do this with health care or you do that with it. you're simply saying you've got to secure it. >> which in my estimation he had trouble answering you. when you say security, that's nonpartisan and he knows if he says it, he's responsible. >> i pressed him hard. he would not respond. >> you would always give in to me if i pressed you hard. >> always. >> absolutely. you stay out of this. >> elisabeth? thank you, elisabeth. at least elisabeth pays attention. steve just heckles. >> i do not. >> you do. you're heckling now. varney and company coming up at 9:20. >> you got that right. >> 20 minutes after the hour, varney and company. the torso man. 19 minutes after the hour. coming up, it might be time to change your on-line

investigated for excessive use of force. could be a murder charge, could be nothing. what happens? the police unions in dallas pressured the chief to say we shouldn't have to give our version of the killings until we talk to everyone else involved, until we look at all the evidence, until we talk to our lawyers. what is that? a special rule just for the police? >> you're not talking about it's going to take 72 hours to put the police record together, the report? you're talking about 72 hours so i can talk to my union rep, so i can talk to our lawyers, so we can figure out whether or not there's videotape? >> look, everybody has the right to remain silent. everybody ought to know they have the right to remain silent. the police are supposed to tell you you have the right to remain silent. but when you work as a police officer, and your legal obligation is to record the truth, especially involved in a death, you have an obligation to record it right away, not to go around and see what other people are going to say about what you did. allowing the police this

exemption to look at all the other evidence before they give their version of it allows them to collaborate, allows them to shade and spin what they're saying. this is the moral equivalent of harry reid exempting his staff from obamacare. what does this have to do with obamacare? it's the culture of government that says a law for everybody and a special law for people in the government. that's what the dallas cops are doing. >> it's troubling on so many different levels. but just take the first thing and that is the sooner you repeat something you just saw, the fresher it's going to be. you wait a couple of days, memories fade. >> look at this instance. this is an actual effort to help the police cover up and collaborate and that is not what they're supposed to do. they're supposed to tell the truth like the rest of us. >> we trust the cops. who is behind this? is it the unions? >> it is the unions behind the cops. and regrettably, if this happened here, ray kelly would tell them to take a hike. in dallas, the police chief

good morning. today is thursday, december 5. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. the white house touting a 29,000 people who signed up for obamacare since the web site fix. but we have brand-new info that proves they should not be bragging. talk about insult to injury, a father whose daughter is battling cancer found out he's been dropped from his insurance company. the reason? insurance policy not good enough for obamacare. the father joins us live shortly. all right. on a lighter note, how does the "duck dynasty" family celebrate christmas? i'm talking about the ladies, missy, kay, cory, and miss kay i should say. they all join us this hour. in fact, they talk to elisabeth. "fox & friends" starts right now. >> hey, this is your buddy and you're watching "fox & friends".
4:01am
>> who? who was that? tickle from "moonshiners." >> oh, i thought it was tigger. i had a problem with him. we had a problem with tigger. >> it wasn't the actual tigger. it was the mascot at disney world. >> right. because my son, who is now 17, was then three, and it was time for significanter's -- tigger's lunch break as my son was about to take his picture. i asked him to stick around. he did not want to. i said please stick around. he did not want to. there was a little bit of a conflict. then we made up. >> indeed. >> resolved. >> yes. >> allall right. you know something that didn't start well is the affordable care act, not so affordable care act. remember for weeks republicans were asking the white house, hey, how many people have signed up? how many people have enrolled? we don't have that information.
4:02am
the information we have is not reliable. we don't know. there is no way to know. okay. that was then. then yesterday the white house was bragging hey, since we fixed the web site, 29,000 people have signed up. okay. so how do they know now, but they didn't know then? a lot of people on capitol hill are going, wait a minute. they probably knew all along. they just wouldn't tell us. >> it sounds like an excessive celebration. certainly they're far from their goal. that's why the full court express on in terms of trying to get young people on the system to pay for it. they will need 7 million people to sign up. that's a very -- it's like a pinpoint from what they need. >> it shows the front end of the web site is doing better. and if you put a million dollars into it. once the experts fixed it, the bill started going up. it's estimated over a billion dollars for a web site!
4:03am
that is absolutely incredible, especially to those who do this for a living, like david kennedy and luke chung, they weighed in. >> to build a site like this with the infrastructure, architecture, you're looking at maybe five or $10 million at a maximum right. you do your proper testing. and the type of things we're seeing isn't rocket science. web application development is a proven science. companies do it alt time. >> this does not need to be a silicon valley space project. this is bread and butter business application web site. i would agree with mr. kennedy in the five, $10 million range max. >> okay. so you could have built it for five or 10 million. extraordinarily, darrell issa yesterday said that he had testimony that apparently a large internet technology company offered the federal government, we will build your site for free. and the federal government passed on it. who was it? i was reading on-line, it was probably ibm because i think in
4:04am
2010, the ceo was talking about yeah, we offered the federal government to build it for them, but they passed. think about that. we could have saved a billion dollars. it could have been done by ibm, the gold standard in that kind of technology and we passed. what? well, maybe there is no incentive in washington to save money or do it right. >> and david kennedy, who you heard from, he's a white house hacker, he went on to compare obamacare web site with amazon.com and he said, how would you rate -- he was asked, how would you rate amazon in terms of security? he gave them a 10. and he went -- he said that the obamacare web site, he'd give about a 2 in terms of security. these are experts, saying they're spending too much money for the formula. let us know what you think about that. obamacare isn't working, so the president goes to his old faithful class warfare argument saying he wants to take out inequality and his policies from the beginning have been to equalize here.
4:05am
is that the case? take a listen. >> the combined trends of increased inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the american dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe. studies show we actually tend to trust each other less when there is greater inequality. greater inequality is associated with less mobility between generations. rise not rising inequality is bd for our democracy. ordinary folks can't write massive campaign checks or hire high priced lobbyists to write laws to tilt the playing field in their favor. so people get the bad taste that the system is rigged. >> i don't get what he did yesterday because keep in mind what they were trying to do. they're trying to change the subject. the affordable care act not working well. what does he do?
4:06am
trying to change the subject to his economic record. but if you look at the record of the president with economics during his five years, it's actually gotten worse for people. >> under his presidency. >> right. the top 1%, their income rose by 31.4%. between 2009 and 2012. income for everyone else, you know how much? 0.4% is how much it grew. these are just facts here. 95% of income gains have gone to the top 1%. so this system that he's talking about, he is the system. >> i've never in my lifetime saw more people looking at each other's income, people being cat gorized on this type of level. i never thought this would happen. but the president in talking about it, spotlighting it, brings up that conversation and vilifies the successful, the rich as if everybody inherited their money, they didn't earn their money instead of lauding them for what they accomplished
4:07am
because the people that do are a lot of times have the success, they do this thing called paying tax and this thing called hiring other people. i think this is a game plan the president should be embracing instead of talking about it the other way. >> when the tax money goes to pay for the programs so those who might not at the time be able to afford it. i think to your point, brian, there is value in those that are in that 1% because their money in taxes has been helping everybody else for a long time. >> it's part of the blame game. he's playing the class warfare card. unfortunately, if he wants to focus in on his economic record, the rich have gotten richer and more poor people are in the country than there were when he took over. there was probably a mistake. maybe they'd like a do over on what should we talk about yesterday. >> think about the money we save on our show. we're looking to cut corners when we can. >> really. >> we need some of your money, brian.
4:08am
>> kilmeade cash. >> be on your 5:00 a.m show. i knock, nobody answers. >> any time. come on over. >> in the news this morning, a stolen truck carrying extremely dangerous materials just found and at least some of that material was recovered. the truck was headed to a storage facility near mexico city when two armed gunmen confronted the driver and took off. the truck was carrying a medical device used in the treatment of cancer patients. inside it, cobalt 60, highry radioactive. authorities worried this could be used to make dirty bombs. the thieves are still on the run. the san antonio spurs and minnesota timberwolves were about to play down in mexico city, but smoke filled the arena, forcing that game to be called off. apparently a generator malfunctioned and the smoke filled that arenaful the matchup will be made up, but this time in minnesota at a later date. this would have been the nba's first game in mexico since 1997. the co-host of the hgtv

four months ago, six-year-old ellie porter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. while she's been fighting for her life, her father has been fighting against obamacare because the family's plan was canceled because it didn't comply with the affordable care act's high standards. now the father and the mother are struggling to find a plan to cover their daughter, but everything they've looked at so far, the premiums have at least doubled. joining us right now is ellie's father, dr. paul porter. he joins us from salt lake city. good morning to you.
4:15am
>> good morning, steve. >> terrible news. we feel terrible about your daughter. when this hit and you were covered by the policy that has since been canceled, you probably had some worries about whether or not it would cover everything, didn't you? >> no doubt, yeah. when something like this happens to your family, you don't know. there is so many unanswered questions that you kind of wade through. when we're confronted with this diagnosis, we were absolutely scared about what our insurance would cover things. we were actually pleasantly surprised. >> so it's been able to cover her cancer treatment so far, the removal of a kidney. you were happy with your insurance. >> yeah. we were very happy with our insurance actually. >> and then you got the letter
4:16am
from the insurance company saying you've been canceled because it didn't rise to the high standard of the affordable care act. when you saw that letter, considering what your family has gone through, what did you want to say to the president of the united states? >> well, definitely frustrating. our story is different in that we are going through very hard time, but there is millions of families around the country that are going through the same thing. it's just adding something for us that we didn't need at this current time. i would say frustrated and a little bit scared of just the uncertainty again of we don't know what's going to happen, where we're going to be. >> so you got the letter. you've got to come up with something new. you've looked at some policies. i hope you don't mind, we're going to put up your financial data. the current policy costs you $364 a month. but to get something that rises to the obamacare standard, it's going to cost more than double
4:17am
and one of the worries you've got, along with your wife, is the new policy, wherever it is, you don't know if little ellie's doctors are going to be in that plan, right? >> that's exactly right. that's something that we have to consider. we've been extremely happy with the care that she's received where she's at, at a great children's hospital. thankfully our plan, they're in network provider for our plan. so we definitely have to look at that as we move forward. and any plan we may consider that, would definitely have to be a top priority for us. >> so you've got such uncertainty because the government is essentially telling you what kind of health care plan you can have. your daughter has been fighting for her life. how is ellie right now? >> el gee doing well. right now she actually starts today with another round of
4:18am
chemotherapy and she actually gets scans sewed. so we get to see if there is any new development in the disease, if there is any new tumors that popped up. so we've got a big finger crossing going on today and hopefully around noon today we'll have good news. >> we're all praying for you. keep us posted on what your family decides to do. >> thank you. >> it's a rough story. especially around christmas time where you simply don't know what the future holds for your family. >> yeah. it is a little uncertain. but we're moving forward with faith and a lot of prayers. we're going to be positive about this. >> all right. we are as well. good luck to you and our best to ellie. >> thank you. >> what do you think about that? e-mail us. the insurance policy was fine of the it was covering everything they needed to, but now they've got to get something now that doubles the premium. crazy. 18 minutes after the top of the hour. the president says his botched obamacare rollout is something

4:46am
president obama making his case to a group at the white house youth summit yesterday by comparing obamacare to the civil rights movement. >> haven't been discouraged by how hard it's been because stuff that's worth it is always hard. civil rights movement was hard. giving weapon the right to vote, that was hard. making sure that workers had the right to organize. that was hard. >> is that a fair comparison? let's talk to fox news legal analyst, peter johnson, jr. >> i guess if you think this is about martin luther king or others, it's not about something that's gone crazy, if you think it's not about a tax and spend plan to redistribute wealth in america and you want to make it about discrimination and class and race and gender warfare, then it's about civil rights. so if you want to romanticize something or talk about the
4:47am
struggle, if you want to talk about a crusade against rich people and middle class people or upper middle class people and somehow bring back a base that has gone away, steve, only 29%, 30% of young americans 18 to 29 who don't have health insurance say they're going to sign up for obamacare. there is another study that says that more than 50% of that same group, if they had an opportunity to recall the president -- we don't have recalls, but great britain and other places do. they would recall the president based upon obamacare and other issues. >> those are the people who voted for him. >> when you grasp for straws and say, this is about the civil rights movement, what do you think about when you think about the civil rights movement? you think about discrimination and making things right. so when you say, well, this is a civil right and that's a civil right and this is a civil right and somehow you're a centurion in the civil war rights, in
4:48am
terms of the romantic and genuine and important quality that may not be felt by most americans. >> such good points. but this is nothing new. we have heard this administration for a number of years say that health care is a right. >> well, what's happening is everything becomes a right in order to increase the registration rolls of a party. so reducing economic inequality, the president talked about that. that's now a civil right. improving upward mobility, that's now a civil right. economic security, that's now a civil right. you talk about the rich against the o you talk about that it's rigged, that there is cynicism, and these are the president's words. rigged, cynicism. so you try and develop an audience that's gone away from you with this kind of overblown logic and rhetoric that doesn't match history, that doesn't
4:49am
match the record. he won't say that this is a program that failed at its outset and impose new taxes and burdens and probably job losses on the american people while they get higher prices for health care and maybe less availability in the next few years. call it civil rights. it makes it sound great and wholey american and part of our struggle as americans to insure that people have what they should have. but that's the real legitimate question. what should they have? what should the government give them? what are they entitled to as a matter of civil rights or natural law? calling this civil rights when he's in a political pickle does a says service to the -- disservice to the civil rights movement, does a disservice to the women's right to vote and to labor. it's ridiculous. >> i got a feeling you're not the only one who feels that way. peter johnson, jr. >> good to see you. >> thank you. what do you think about that? e-mail us right now.

4:54am
will sign and we will send. when it comes to educating our students, the united states is falling behind again. >> just take a look at the latest test results. we have american students, they didn't make the top five for reading, in fact, they fell to 17th overall. >> when it comes to science, we came in 21st. >> the worst of all, math, where american students ranked 26. >> right. so why do our students keep ahe? michelle ree is the founder of students first and former chancellor of dc's public schools. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> certainly when you see the numbers, you have to have a strong reaction. what's the cause? why is everyone surging ahead and we're in the same place we were? >> the interesting thing when you look at these rankings is that the scores of american kids have actually remained pretty consistent over time. the problem is that other countries really are leap frogging ahead of us. these are countries that are not necessarily richer than us or
4:55am
spending more money. we are right now in math sandwiched between the slow lack republic and lithuania. so as a country, we really are not obviously putting the effort and the energy into prioritizing education as sort of the number one issue in the country. >> let me take a step back. i believe that these kids today do more homework than ever before. we understand that if you compare the fifth grade when we were in school compared to fifth graders today, they seem to be ahead of the curve. i never feel as though we're having less. it seems like we're doing more. >> well, i think it's part a cultural issue. i think we've taken to spending so much time making kids feel good about themselves that we've lost sight of taking time to make them good at things. for example, you go to any american soccer league, every single kid gets a trophy instead of instilling in our kids the
4:56am
notion that in order to get a trophy, that means you've got to be the best. you've got to work hard. you've got to really put the effort in. and i think that we've got to change that piece of our culture if we're going to be able to keep up in the global marketplace. >> certainly making competition a bad thing may come back to bite us. we have great educators out there, seems to be the system is failing them as well. >> absolutely. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you. we hope you get the scores up. coming up straight ahead, as you get oler, how do you plan for the rest of your life? bob massi is dipping into his mail bag to answer your questions. we showed you the video yesterday. victoria secret models taking on taylor swift and one of those angels joins us live in the next hour. and she's bringing her $10 million bra. >> and her long hair and she jog s. what does that first spoonful taste like?

risk includes possible loss of principal. good morning. it's thursday, december 5. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. we begin with a fox news alert. fox news confirms an american shot dead in benghazi. the breaking details moments away. and stunning new details about obamacare. the president and kathleen sebelius only had one face-to-face meeting in the 3 1/2 years leading up to the launch. could that be responsible for how badly a it rolled out? you be the judge. we'll tell but it shortly. >> what's there to talk about? martin bashir resigns after making disgusting comments about sarah palin. what does sarah palin think now that he's out of there? she joins us in less than 30 minutes to respond first. "fox & friends" final hour starts now. >> hi, this is sarah palin, you're watching "fox & friends." my favorite show. steve told me to say that.
5:01am
>> probably did. >> because we know that hannity will be very insulted if she said that. >> she will be with us and you will hear her first comments about martin bashir, who resigned yesterday, very shortly. >> less than 30 minutes away. we'll start with break news. we'll head over to ainsley earhart. >> thank you. a fox news alert. breaking right now, gunman killing a u.s. citizen working at an international school in benghazi. this according to medical and security sources. the attackers shot the american during his morning workout routine. he was a teacher at that international school and so far, no one is claiming responsibility for that shooting. in addition to that, we have another fox news alert this morning. another train derailing here in the northeast. this time a freight train carrying hazardous materials in new jersey. haz-mat crews are there on the scene. the train was backing into a facility around 1:00 a.m. when it hit a large structure near the town of woodbridge. one car flipped, another is on its side. fire bosses say so far they
5:02am
haven't found leaks and there is no danger to the public. it could take hours to upright those two cars. no injuries have been reported. autopsy results revealing paul walker initially survived the horrific impact of the car crash. experts say he died seconds later when the car burst into flames. investigators are still trying to determine exactly what caused his friend to careen out of control. a stolen truck carrying extremely dangerous materials just found and at least some of the materials have been recovered. the truck was heading to a storage facility near mexico city when two armed gunmen confronted the driver and took off. the truck was carrying a medical device used in the treatment of cancer patients. inside, cobalt 60, highly radioactive. authorities worried that material could be used to make dirty bombs. the thieves are still on the run. and the search for the new wonder woman is now over. she is an israeli actress, gail gadot, played a weapons expert
5:03am
in "fast and furious" movies and spent two years in the israeli army. the man of steel sequel hits july 2015. based on that shot, i think guys will like it. >> we do like entertainment. thank you. get this, from the day that the affordable care act was signed by the president of the united states right until a couple of days ago, the president of the united states met with members of his cabinet 277 times. in 277 private meetings. how many times during the launch of his signature achievement of obamacare did he meet with the woman in charge of installing that? 277 times with all the other cabinet members. one time with kathleen sebelius. >> that was april 21st 2010. it was a joint meeting with tim geithner, which is unthinkable. we all know that kathleen sebelius is not a web master and she kept saying, i'm not really
5:04am
a technical person, but you would that i if the president is not a technical person and kathleen sebelius is not a technical person, you would think the three of them would meet before they launched on a regular basis in september. and she kind of let us know that when asked, when is the last time you met with the president. i don't really know. she kind of made that clear during the hearings. >> a press conference when he said he was not informed directly that the web site would not be working the way it was supposed to. remember that was post when he was trying explain why he had no responsibility here. according to the government accountability institute study, they met just one time, not alone. never a single meeting, and peter sitesser -- >> met with timothy geithner as well. >> this is actually more about the president's priorities than anything else. >> you can look at any president, george w. bush, richard nixon, ronald reagan, bill clinton, you look at their calendar and you can see what's important to them. even if you don't know anything about what was going on at that
5:05am
time, look at their calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that he is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> let's talk a little bit about priorities. seiu, i think they spent close to $30 million helping the president of the united states get elected. so they spent $30 million. how many times did andy stern, sciu chief visit the white house? 50, 60 times, something like that. it does show that -- you look at that and think, well, maybe he's more interested in having the job than doing the job. but as he just pointed out, it's all about priorities. yesterday i think we heard the president of the united states say when he retires from the white house, you know what he'd like to do? he would like to host the sports center top ten program. >> right. >> maybe it will work with your husband. >> i know condoleeza rice wants to be nfl commissioner. >> speechless. just to think about this, this
5:06am
is his signature plan. how does that make you feel is this right now in your home, millions of people losing their coverage, knowing the president met with kathleen sebelius one time in the 3 1/2 years leading up to this? how does that make you feel? >> the "new york times," oftentimes they have the unnamed white house source, we watched how the stories pop up. now we understand there is mounting pressure from democrats and close allies to hold senior level people accountable for the botched rollout of president obama's plan. now, part of the thing that i find most intriguing over the last couple weeks is how quiet democrats have been from harry reid on down and outside senator manchin, no one is saying a word. we heard they were waiting 'til december 1. now we understand maybe get a clue of what's happening behind the scenes, pressure is mounting for the president to fix it and make somebody responsible for it because if you go out and try to getected, knowing this is on your resume, this is a vote that you supported, you have to
5:07am
at least pretend as if you're trying to fix it. you could say hey, i've put pressure on the president to restructure and change his management style. >> extraordinarily -- and the president's top advisors through the years have been very loyal. extraordinarily yesterday, bill burton told megyn kelly, and he was a communications guy for the president for a very long time -- said you know what? forget about anybody else. this has one person to blame and that person is -- here it is. >> as a loyalist to the president, as somebody who is behind this law and worked hard with the team to get it passed, do you want to see somebody held accountable for this disastrous rollout? >> my view is that i can't make the decision whether or not it's best to fire somebody because ultimately this lies on the president's shoulders and we can't fire the president. >> all right. so you're saying if anybody should be held accountable, it should be barak obama? >> absolutely. >> think about it. if they do fire somebody, then they would have a sacrificial
5:08am
lamb. we didn't roll it out right, but -- and we fired so and so, so it's all taken care of. you can't possibly blame the president 'cause he's up at the top and the people down here are the people who installed it. >> right. and there may be some who might want to change their minds or want the president to be out of office and it may be the young people that he's trying to sell obamacare to. we know the young people are the ones that they're going to right now to try to pay for a system to pay for the older, more sick individuals. so they are the target of the government as it seems. so president obama is calling on everyone, last week he called on parents to talk to their kids about it during thanksgiving. now he's saying, bartenders, should start selling it to the kids. >> so if you're a student body president, set up a conference on campus. if you work in a nonprofit, open your doors and use your e-mail lists to help people learn the facts. if you've got a radio show, spread the word on air. if you're a bartender v a happy
5:09am
hour -- have a happy hour and probably get health insurance because a lot of bartenders don't have it. >> i cannot that made his things to talk about list. he had 160 youth leaders for a youth summit to talk about obamacare and basically how it approach it. you look at some of the ratings and rankings, it's got to concern the president who we know is not up for reelection, because he wants to get as many democratic governors in place and hold on to the senate and make inroads on the house. this is really a president in campaign mode and he can not be pleased, steve, with the numbers he's seeing right now from those millenials. >> harvard institute of politics has been too long surveys for a while. look at this. the millenials, these are the -- this particular one is people between the ages of 18 and 29. barak obama's core group, do you approve or disapprove of obamacare? 57% disapprove. only about a little north of a third of those kids approve. and the next one we've got is even more jaw dropping.
5:10am
a majority of america's youngest adults would vote to recall -- recall president obama. >> look at the age group. 18 to 24 yearlies were asked if you could recall your vote for the president, would you? do you know how many said they would? 52% said they would recall their vote for the president. 18 to 24-year-olds. that age group is key for this administration and certainly will have them in a panic. >> a lot of those kids are kids who -- with regard to obamacare, they can still be on their parents' health care if the parents so choose. clearly these are kids who are look for jobs, worried about their future, they're worried about america. and right now, they had high hopes for this president and so far it looks like they've been frustrated. >> also unhappy with congress. same thing. i'll tell you, when you get out of college, you have no money, you're lucky to get a job. you're paying student debt, now you find out you're going to be
5:11am
fined and you have to get health care and it offers more than you need because you have to support a process in which you thought you voted for something and it finds out to be something entirely different. >> they're also looking at their parents who are scared and suffering and also feeling the effects of obamacare being dropped by their policies and these kids don't want their parents in that situation either. >> all right. 11 minutes after the top of the hour. thank you for joining us on this thursday. coming up, as you get older, how do you plan for the rest of your life? should you trust your children to handle your money? bob massi answers your questions. when we were talking about children, we're not talking about 9-year-olds. >> kaitlyn is ten. i don't really give her my money yet. the san diego chargers have a new cheerleader. grandpa caught dancing in the stands. more of this.
5:12am
5:13am
5:14am
5:15am
as many americans get older, not us, of course, many face the challenge of preparing for end of life care and if you got kids, the decisions can be even harder. fox news legal analyst bob massi joins us right now with the best ways you can protect your money and your family. bob, we don't love this topic. we need to hear about this topic. first off, what is an account of convenience? >> let's talk about claire and sophie. this is a story that's a real story where sophie got put in a nursing home and claire was put on what's called an account of convenience. here is what it means: it means that the person is allowing someone -- in this case, her daughter -- to manage the money while she's in a nursing home to pay bills. the problem is when you put somebody on the account of convenience, brian, as an owner,
5:16am
they have equal access to the money. unfortunately while sophie was in the nursing home, claire took all the money. >> unbelievable. on top of that, how does medicaid fit into that? for example if you were laid up or in serious care, you can't really get insurance as long as you have money. correct? so do they just take your money until it goes out? >> yeah. medicaid you have to be destitute, indigent on the street, god forbid that they would help people in that situation. yeah, you have to deplete the money down before you'd become eligible for medicaid. in this particular case, of course, that didn't even happen. she just took the money. but the bigger issue was she had -- sophie -- she had a will. and in that will, it specifically said that all three children get her estate when she dies. guess what happened? she passed and part of the estate was gone. why? because sophie trusted claire, put her name on the bank account, clear depleted the money and the other kids are
5:17am
saying, hey, where is the money that mom said we have under our will? >> how can we protect ourselves? >> here is what i do, first of all, i understand accounts of convenience, but i hate them for this reason. specifically if you're going to do that, you go to a lawyer and you have some type of memo agreement as to the intent of this account. but the other thing die is this i have the person that comes to me put on the check, on the physical part of the check, account of convenience. why? because that shows the intent of the person, that the intent was not to gift this money to them, but rather to help manage the money because how is a judge ever going to know, brian, what was the intent behind the parties? you do as much as you can to memorialize this subject so that if the money is used, the other people have some kind of legal action. here is the practical side, my friend. if the money is gone, what's
5:18am
going to happen? the kids could sue her, but if she blew the money, the money is gone. happens a lot, brian. >> there is no good answer. actually you got to size up the one kid who has been the most responsible. not necessarily your favorite kid, but the one that's been more responsible with their money. that might be a good way to categorize or decide who should be on the money account of convenience. >> it is. sometimes, brian, they marry -- i always tell me them, you love your kid, but you may hate your son-in-law and daughter-in-law. sometimes they get married. there is influence there and as a result, the people use the money. i must tell you, this problem, one thing before we go, brian, when people open up a joint account, even in this situation, they think it's a 50/50 deal. it is not. it is 100-100 deal. if you got 10,000 in an account, you have the right to take that 10,000 out. it's not 5,000. it's 10,000. so understand when you set up these accounts, get some good counsel so you really understand the consequence of it.

5:32am
resigning post an apology, sort of a three-week missing time from television. and we want to talk about your book "good tidings." you say something that is applicable to him. you said if you live and love this world, you will be hurt. >> yeah. >> obviously his comments were hurtful and wrong. do you think resigning is enough? he did apologize. he resigned instead of being fired. is that enough? what's your reaction to that news? >> my role is to accept his apology and be humble enough to accept it and move on. but i just hope that unprovoked attacks like that don't result in people being hesitant to jump in the arena anyway, to get out there and serve the public or start a business or really commit themselves to changing what's in their family, their community, their world, doing whatever that they can, despite the fact that in this world, you are going to be hurt and attacks will come your way.
5:33am
i just hope an attack like that doesn't make people hesitate. >> one of the things about his attack is it was scripted. it was premeditated. we've all said things on tv when we're ad libbing. >> not me, but go ahead. >> this was the people at nbc had a chance to review it and they obviously were apparently all agreed. and rather than fire him, they let him resign. >> after weeks. >> well, it was refreshing to see, though, that many in the media did come out and say, look, our standards have got to be higher than this. those with that platform, with a microphone, a camera in their face, they have to have more responsibility taken. >> think about this, if governor palin from six years ago was attacked like this, would you have reacted differently? how have you changed knowing this was not new? >> well, at this point i'm used to it. that's kind of a sad state of affairs to have to admit, that i
5:34am
am used to it. after five years of this kind of stuff, some of that kind of gets knocked out of you a little bit. so six years ago i probably would have been personally hurt by such an attack. now no, i look at it as kind of par for the course and just again, hoping that that doesn't make those who have not yet been under attack like that has tate to get out there -- hesitate and get throughout and try to change the world. >> unfortunately, there is a double standard with conservatives and in particular, conservative women, wouldn't you say? >> that's obvious. and as i've said before, i think the target of the attack is usually more significant than what the attack, the articulated words used actually are. that's part of that double standard. >> did you hear from the national organization of women? >> haven't heard from one. >> have you checked your voice mail? nothing?
5:35am
>> i'm sure they're getting to it. >> so governor, the fact that he resigned, your main point is people should go out and give their opinion. but stop with the personal attacks. how is that ever going to benefit you? >> well, that's very true. this, of course, some of the attacks go beyond the personal attacks. as i said, too, brian, when it comes to me personally, i do feel like i can handle it. i feel kind of callused, but not in a bad way. but heaven forbid martin bashir or anybody else come out against somebody who cannot defend themselves and perhaps -- >> then you'll go. >> i'll go ballistic on that person, absolutely. gloves are off. heels are on and that will really say what i want to say. >> we can counts on that. >> quick word about obamacare. i thought it was significant that yesterday it became clear that senator harry reid has exempted his staff from obamacare. >> well, these obamacare
5:36am
supporters who continue to pick the winners and losers, it's all the more reason that the electorate get out there and start campaigning for true public servants who understand that congress is not to be above the law. that's a dictatorship that would be embraced if we continue to go down this road with some of these select few in congress who would, as i say, pick the winners and losers. in the meantime, joe blow american is suffering. >> yeah. you're going to bring good tidings to everybody. i love this book "good tidings, great joy." it's got such great messaging in here not only about forgiveness and being bold about what christmas means to you, but has your stories in here, great recipes. tell everybody a little bit more. >> i love this book so much because it's not my message. it is the message, universal message of christmas which is real hope. it's not that dopey hopi changey stuff coming out of washington that's a bunch of bs.
5:37am
this is real stuff. remember the angel told mary when she was under these less than ideal circumstances, the angel said fear not, i bring you good tidings and great joy. it's a universal message that can be embraced and certainly remembered through the christmas season. but applied year round to all of us that we need not fear that if we can understand and absorb and really embrace that true spirit of christmas year round, none of us need to fear. none of us need to really take offense from people who are going to try to shoot you down or hurt you and destroy you really. it's that hold on to that real hope and the world is going to be a better place. >> it is a better place. the book is resonating. how many copies did you sign yesterday at liberty university? >> we lost track. but there were 10,000 students there at liberty university. i think an incentive was the president of the university,
5:38am
president fallwell told the kids, told the students, i'll give you an excused tardy if you stand in line. and they stood in line. it was a blast. >> we're just a couple weeks away from christmas. does what does former governor sarah palin want for christmas? >> oh, my goodness. >> santa might be listening! >> you know, at this point in my life, i just want everybody happy and healthy, around me to have that wonderful rowdy christmas we always have in our family threw in alaska. everybody come over to my house and ice skate and eat a ton of good comfort foods and have a blast. we do it every year, so i anticipate we'll do it again this year. >> that's great. >> you know what that means? gift certificates. >> gift cards. >> all the kids drive trucks up there, right? these are gas hogs, which is politically incorrect, but that's how you get around, in four wheel drives up there. so yes, gas cards for all the kids. that's what they're getting in
